Arlo Parks (from 2021)

My KUTX // October 1, 2022

Arlo Parks released her debut album Collapsed In Sunbeams to rave reviews last year. The British artist combines indie pop sounds with perceptive, poetic lyrics about romance, whether it’s falling in love or dreaming herself away. She brings this music to ACL Fest this year, playing both Fridays, October 7 and October 14.

This week on My KUTX, we rebroadcast Parks’ guest DJ set from 2021. An early introduction to Duke Ellington and John Coltrane led her into a life of music, and she’s picked up inspiration from the Arctic Monkeys, Sufjan Stevens, Solange, and more along the way. Hear Arlo Parks’ My KUTX on Saturday, October 1 at 6 p.m. or listen anytime in the player above.
